Amiga & AROS After much, much development, the developers behind AmigaOS 4 have released the first alpha of Timberwolf, the AmigaOS 4 port of the Firefox web browser. I tried it out on my Amiga, and indeed confirmed that this is very much alpha material.

2006-01-26 already have a WebKit browser. Dump the money into bringing it up to speed wit Safari and Chrome. I don't get it. I wouldn't touch Mozilla for the last 18 months on my Mac because WebKit has gotten so much better, why would anyone want this? On a platform that needs a solid web browser, why would they make the same mistake the Be people made?

Choice is good?

Even though I use Chrome on my Windows box, I still keep an updated Firefox around for those occasions where it runs a website better (and there are definitely situations where that's the case).

It certainly doesn't hurt to have two of the major browsers available on any platform (and I hope Haiku will eventually get a fresh Firefox port to complement it's native Webkit browser).

Both of you have some good points. Personally I'm quite satisfied with OWB on AROS, and personally don't want FF around. For the few websites, where WebKit-based browsers have issues (a handful of those I need, incl. some government-sites with digital signatures, java and remnants of IE-specific code) I have Windows Server 2008+Firefox/IE (or LFS+Wine+blahblahblah) and what not. OTOH, that's not really an option for PPC-based platforms.
